Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
We rent this beautiful apartment for tourist stays. It is located at walking distance from the centre of Florence and from the Santa Maria Novella railway station. There is a wide kitchen, well equipped to prepare any kind of meal with a four-ring stove, a living room with a table and a sofa bed (queen size), tv, dvd player. There are two bedrooms with double beds. Another single bed is available in one of the two bedrooms. The wide bathroom has a tub equipped for a standing shower with a tent enclosure.
The apartment is so suitable even for two families. The two little balconies are perfect for relaxing moments, in particular that on the kitchen. One faces north offering a beautiful panorama of the Fiesole hills, the other, faces south on the quiet private alley. "Renzo's Apartment" is located at the 3rd floor (ground floor + 3 levels - no elevator) in a high-class residential complex rising back to late 1800. In the same complex, just on the other side of the private alley, there is our other "Magenta Apartment" (in this website: # 37422). So please consider the possibility to book it as alternative choice or both in the case you are numerous in party. There is a washing machine, TV, iron, hair-dryer, plenty of linen and towels, devices for different voltage (110V to Italian standard) and many other household items.
Normally you'll find all the common stuffs of a normal Italian home. Our aim is make you to feel like at home. Sorry no pets. The heating and electrics have been recently overhauled and now comply with all safety regulations. There is not air conditioning, but due to the fact the apartment faces both sides of the building, rooms are extremely ventilated and some fans are enough.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy. Rich of historic towns and a beautiful countryside.
Renzo's Apartment is located close to the main routes which lead rapidly to other important tourist goals in Tuscany.
We could make a long list of beautiful places to visit in Tuscany by car with a daily trip but we would need an entire page to show them all. So let us write only some suggested places: Siena, San Giminiano, Colle Val D'Elsa, Volterra, Vinci, Pistoia, Lucca...and then all the beautiful places of the Chianti area. Both our apartments: Magenta Apartment and Renzo's Apartment are at walking distance from the railway station and daily trips are recommended.
Florence has not the necessity of an introductive description. It is one of the most famous historic towns of Italy. Thousands of tourists come from all over the world every year to visit the marvellous pieces of art in its relatively small historic centre. Renzo's Apartment and Magenta Apartment are located in the west side of Florence near Porta Prato and the Arno River. Nearby there are a lot of small restaurants where you can sample a "ribollita", the typical soup. There is a supermarket, the post office, a "pizzeria", very nice pubs, many small shops for bread, vegetables, meat etc. The railway station is about at ten minutes on foot and you must consider that Santa Maria Novella Station is right on the border of the renaissance world, where all the main attraction are located and easily reachable at walking distance. You must consider that Florence is not so wide but it is quite busy with plenty of narrow streets and alleys. It is much better walking rather than using buses. The riverbank walk is really a pleasant walk to begin (or end) a daily adventure in this town. Anyway near Porta Prato there are the bus stops for going almost everywhere.

"A Beautiful Italian Apartment"
We booked Renzos apartment as we wanted a balcony to sit on and this has 2! The booking process was very straight forward and the owner ( Paolo ) was very helpful, sending information an google maps and photos !As we arrived late at night from Pisa airport at the the train station (it was only a 10 minute walk) but had no problems finding the apartment ( due to looking at the very helpful maps before we went) and also Paolo had posted the keys to our home address a few weeks before so that was a bonus.
The apartment was very clean when we arrived , plenty of towels and lovely clean sheets. It is furnished with a mixture of antique and new an is quite elegent, the bed was very comfortable. The other bedroom has also got a large ouble bed and a single too.
We enjoyed been on the balcony off the kitchen eating breakfast and drinking chanti in the evening and watching the locals.
It took us about 15 minutes to walk along the river to the Ponti Vecchio bridge so was well placed for every inch of Florence.
There is a couple of restaurants nearby, a bread shop and a supermarket which was open every day.
We would have no hessitation in recomending staying here and we will definitely book again.
